David Boxley is an internationally recognized Northwest Coast Native artist and culture bearer. David carves totems, masks, boxes and more.

His grandparents, from whom he learned many Tsimshian traditions including the language, raised David. After high school he attended Seattle Pacific University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1974. He became a teacher and basketball coach to Junior and Senior high students in Alaska and Washington.

While teaching in Metlakatla in 1979 he began devoting considerable time to the study of traditional Tsimshian carving. Through researching ethnographic material and carvings from museum collections, Boxley has learned the traditional carving methods of his grandfather's people.

He primarily produces his artwork on a commission basis.
